Fabulous home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home with two families. The house was perfect with a two separate kitchens and living areas, giving the adults and kids some separation. The view was amazing from the deck and the location to the ski area and town was great! We would love to go back!!

Christmas Trip Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations had fun! Eleven of us! Parents appreciated the ski locker near the lift. Eight minutes from Overlook to the slopes. The pool table and kitchen were busy each evening. Appy and Meme enjoyed the view overlooking the town, fireplace, and their space! We'll plan a return trip! Coal Creek Grill, Secret Stash, Ryce were welcome restaurants. Craig goes the second and third mile to make sure everything is right and is a great resource.

The perfect "mountain mansion"

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our lodging at this beautiful house. We were in crested butte for a long weekend with 3 families (6 adults, 8 kids all under 6 years old). Each family had their own floor for sleeping and the main floor has a large beautiful kitchen and living area. We did not have great weather so spend more time indoors than we normally would have, and over and over said to each other how happy we were to be staying in such a nice place. There is a great bike trail right outside the door. There was easy hiking from the house. We would drive into downtown cb but only 10 minutes away. We have stayed in downtown cb several times which we have always loved but for a larger group, this was definitely the better option. Would highly recommend staying here!

This home exceeded our expectations. The large great room had spectacular views. The entire house had high end finishes. We had several meals in the house and enjoyed the large kitchen with top notch appliances. Two identical master suites and several other bedrooms gave us plenty of room for all. I would highly recommend this house.

My husband and I rented this house during our wedding in Mt. Crested Butte a week ago, and it was quite an amazing stay! The owner, Craig, is super friendly and helpful, showing us every wonderful detail of this gigantic house including surround sound in every room that is controled with a touch of dial to the lovely gas fire place on the top level as well as the main double sided fireplace on the main level. The main room and the patio have jaw dropping views of Mt. Emmons, and the house literally sat on Mt. Crested Butte Mountain, on the lower/ upper trail. The master bedrooms were very comfortable, with plush bedding, large closets, and a wonderful view of the town of Crested Butte. I fell in love with the kitchen, amazing granite countertops and state of the art appliances. Also, the kitchen was stocked with items we needed like a crock pot and TONS of spices. The game room is fantastic! An awesome and completely stocked pool table with a separate kitchen and two couches that duel as pull out beds. The garage has everything you need for the outdoors including 4 mountain bikes, hiking boots, snow boots, ski's, etc. (basically everything!) In our four day stay, we had the most amazing time ever and we are coming back next year! Thank you Craig!

.This place is a dream come true!

We are located at the world class ski area of Crested Butte Mountain Resort and bordered by the Gunnison National Forest. Must-do winter activities include skiing, snowmobiling, snow cat skiing, ice skating, hockey, sledding and 26 kilometers of groomed cross country skiing, all surrounding the gourmet restaurants, fun funky bars and quaint shops of the fun ski town of Crested Butte. There is no end to the activities of the summer, including gold medal fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback, 4-wheeling, dirt biking, fun and festive activities for all and more and more and more. If you come in the winter you can count on making plans to return. If you come in the summer, you will be making plans to move here. 85% of the county is public lands. Being in Crested Butte is like being in one gigantic park.
